I rather like those designs, especially Jyarumu.
My most wanted fight ever is Discord vs Bobobo-bo bo-bobo.
Godzilla has a regen like Wolverine, a skin like Luke Cage, a hero aura like Captain America, a strength like Hulk, an unstoppability like Juggernaut, an immortality like Deadpool.

There's a 'God' in Godzilla for a reason...

I can definitely appreciate the more "alien" take on Godzilla even if the final design is not something I find particularly appealing; while I enjoy many of the ideas that went into the design (evolved like nothing else on earth, skin covered in armored epidural plates, etc.) I don't quite like the final body shape and the look of the dorsal fins. It's pretty neat though, sort of an odd hybrid between Shin Godzilla and Godzilla Earth in execution.

The Ghidorah I'm a bit more receptive to; he looks like something truly alien and built for spaceflight, but I'd be lying if I wasn't just a tad dissapointed that it seems that he's unable to land and melee Godzilla like the classic Ghidorah can.

Even still, both designs are pretty neat for what they are (intentionally different takes for a new Godzilla redesign contest of the sort that goes through the fandom every few years)

Well they're definetly unique, I'll give them that. Kinda cool how Ghidorah is essentially an organic sattelite that shoots black holes from space.

Not my cup of tea at all, but I can appreciate the unique, if not bizzare aspects of them.

I'm gonna be "that guy" and say Orbital Ghidorah is a fine idea and design for a monster, but not necessarily for Ghidorah. Either way it's quite cool.

Quinnred's designs are quite unique, but I really don't like that Ghidorah. The Godzilla design's kinda decent.

maybe you guys have heard of Pyrus-Leonidas before, but he's been doing fan art for some of the Titans we didn't see in KOTM and his versions are skreoonking fantastic! :D

here's links to my favorites.

Abaddon

Baphomet

https://www.deviantart.com/pyrus-leonid ... -802149728

Orochi

Leivathan

And personal favorite, Sekhmet


https://www.deviantart.com/pyrus-leonid ... -802401810

there's a couple others that he made, including the ones we did see like Behemoth, but i don't wanna clog up the thread.l

Pyrus makes some great kaiju designs. Leviathan, Abaddon, and Orochi are my favorites out of that bunch.

Hm... I dunno. Most of them are just dragons, and Sekhmet literally has the head of Nala from The Lion King.

Trollmans got quite a sweet reimagining of Gezora right here!

Lol you do have a point, it does look like something straight out of "After Man". Even drawn in the same style. Dixon would be proud :lol:

Love his take on Gezora though. Looks more like an actual cephalopod, but still recognizeable as the classic Gezora. His story in this is also pretty damn interesting, and I dig his explanation about the "Yog virus". Trollmans's series has some well thought out worldbuilding.

I find it very interesting that his Maguma is a primate rather than a reptile or pinniped.

That Gezora is superb! The only issue I have is with the eyes; don't care for how they look like actual cephalopod eyes. The weird human-like eyes on the original have a sort of derpy charm to them. Just a minor complaint, though.

The rest of these are from a series of redesigns/an AU the artist came up. I’d definitely recommend checking out the whole gallery, it’s got a lot of cool stuff in it. Some examples of that cool stuff, which make much more sense upon reading the descriptions for them:

Yoroi Goji

Shin SpaceGodzilla

I really like those designs. They fit well for the Shin AU the artist's working on.

Agreed, very generic imo.

Looks like he's covered in cysts and has broken glass jutting out from his back. It looks like the epitome of pain. The art is well done, and the concept is unique, but I can't say I like it. What's that thing sticking out between his legs, though?

Ghidorah is interesting. Very fascinating design, but not for Ghidorah. It's more like it's own seperate creature, rather than being Ghidorah himself.

Pyrus-Leonidas' Titan designs are very standard and have a Disney feel to them, especially with Sekhmet. It's any lioness from The Lion King but with spikes. They don't explore different body plans, patterns, or details very much.

Emily Stepp has completed my commission for Ghidorah Extreme version 2. I went full wyvern for this one (skreeonking sue me), and I added snake elements with the cobra hoods
